Ooohh!!! Well first, congrats! I will never forget my first bathing suit day! It was terrifying!
It wasn’t the perfect day, I still had inscurities, and my mind screamed when I ran around and my tummy and thighs wobbled, but the important thing was to take this step, to finish the day, accomplish my goal, which was to wear a swimsuit in public, and I did it.
I will tell you what I wish I could’ve told myself. If your body shakes, let it shake, do not be embarrassed. We all shake! Some don’t, but a lot of us do, you are not alone. Do not be afraid of your body, do not hide your body. Show it off and grin, smile knowing that you are taking such a big step towards being comfortable in your skin! The rolls, the shakes, the cellulite, the wrinkles, the pimples, the scars, the stretch-marks, ALL OF IT. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, you have a right to be proud, you have a right to love it all, and when you finish the day, you will see that your bravery was worth it <3
